1 – Take pictures now.
2 – Start conserving energy and water. “How much does it cost to operate this home”? is one of the most common questions buyers are asking now.
3 – Do those things now that you’ve been meaning to do since you moved in. You know: caulking around the windows, replacing that screen, putting that threshold back â€¦ you know the list.
4 – Start going to open houses. Look at comparable homes. Ask a good Realtor for advice. You might think this home is a comp, but really, it’s not because of all the new construction ongoing (or planned for the next 18 months)
5 – Contracts are up, new listings are down and sold homes are way down. Start doing your market research now. Ask questions.
